I'm now living in Zurich and am at the closest to my dream of being a climbing bum as I am ever likely to be. I'm working three days a week so I can climb lots. Its part in pay back to myself for living and working (too hard) in London for 4 years and having to drive for hours to climb anything. So I still have to travel a bit to climb but the alps are about as far from me as southern sandtone used to be...bring it on!
